BOF age classes explained
Seniors: M/W21, M/W35, M/W40, M/W45, M/W50, M/W55, M/W60, M/W65, M/W70, M/W75, M/W80
Your age class is dictated by the age that you will be on 31st December of the current year.
E.g. if my birthday is on March 14th and I will be 46 then I am M/W45 from Jan 1st of this year through to Dec 31st of the year before I turn 50. On Jan 1st of the year I turn 50, I then become M/W50.

Juniors: M/W10, M/W12, M/W14, M/W16, M/W18, M/W20
Same idea as above except it’s anyone that age or younger by Dec 31st of the current year.
